Center pink

I worked on Aurora Borealis tonight and finished Pattern 1.  this is a flat pattern variation.  I did a series of over five and over two to create the openings for the beads.  This is surrounded by Madeira gold over two as well and you can see I left some dangling at the top on the right.  I will finish the column up after I work the bottom row of the next pattern.  After placing the  beads,  I did uprights over five threads and on top of the beads using burgundy Soie d"Alger.

I love this pattern without the beads. It is a lovely open stitch. Marnie Ritter creates very beautiful stitches. I bet in person the changes in direction provide lovely changes in color from light reflection.
